First of all, I congratulate all the staff because they did a very good job. The first day I was confused, and I didn’t understand anything. You helped me to figure out many things. I know now that my English is good, and I improved it a lot. I advise all other students who want to improve their English to come to TIEP because it is very exciting. It’s very interesting because you find many nationalities and can add to your general culture. Austin is a very nice place to live, and I plan to come back to Austin one day.
I have much chance to speak and use English which I learned at TIEP. I am really happy with my job. It's so challenging and wonderful. I think my experience at TIEP was really good. I appreciate my teachers and classmates. Thank you so much!

I think the experience not only has broadened my vision, but also enriched my life. Actually, besides language, I did pick up a bunch of teaching skills from my class. Now I can't wait to tell my friends how worthwhile it has been to study at TIEP.

The teachers at TIEP, all of them, are excellent. One of the most important things I have learned at TIEP is to speak without being afraid. I have also learned to be consistent in my studies and to ask a lot of questions.

If you are an international student who wants to study in an American university, I suggest you to come to study at TIEP. You can lay a solid foundation in English and make a lot of friends from different parts of the world.

...I would like to thank our teachers for unselfishly sharing your time, talent and knowledge with us. You really put in the effort to make lessons more interesting to us so we wouldn't just tune out. And you demanded excellence from us. And I would like to give a big thanks for our lovely advisor, the queen Victoria, we call her like that, who helped us with everything, not only with school issues, but even with our problems that we face outside school.
-Sulaiman Alghaith, Saudi Arabia
After one semester in level 138 and half a semester in 158, my TOEFL score was 633! I'm positive that TIEP is one of the BEST schools for ESL in America!
-Lucila Barbosa, Brazil
You upgraded our command of English. However, we all learned more than that. You gave us a special present, the unforgettable and invaluable memories.
